Jump Ship


Last weekend saw the second annual Jump Ship competition at Ship Point. This is a mountain bike acrobatic competition involving some of the best riders in the world. A series of dirt mounds were erected on a barge tied to Ship Point Pier (adjacent to the Inner Harbour Causeway) and riders leapt with their bikes from a high tower, bounced up and down off these mounds and engaged in impossible stunts while airborne.

Brave athletic souls! Wonderfully captured...

Love the top one, a turn-about of sorts, with the concrete, opague-like sky and an ephemeral rider.
